Low Gi Chicken Kebabs

Even though for a lot of you, the weather is getting cooler, we are heading into warmer weather, which means we will be enjoying a lot more meals outdoors on the braai (barbecue) and these kebabs are a perfect start to the season.  Pair these with a Low GI Apple and Cabbage Salad.  Yummy.

Low GI Chicken Kebabs


500g chicken breasts skinned and cubed
Button mushrooms
Onion cut into thick slices
Alternatively any vegetables of your choice


1 garlic clove crushed
65ml soy sauce
65ml lemon juice
½ small onion peeled and grated


  1. Place the chicken on the skewers alternating with the vegetables and place in a shallow dish.
  2. In a glass bowl, mix the garlic, soy sauce, lemon juice and onion and microwave on high for 1 – 2 minutes to cook the onion.
  3. Pour the marinade over the kebabs and marinate for 1 hour or longer if time permits.
  4. Braai (barbecue) the kebabs turning every 2 minutes until cooked.  Alternatively, grill the kebabs in the oven.

    • For some peculiar reason I always seem to be the exception to most rules 😀 so I have never felt the sugar lows – it might also well be that I “fill-up” with a few good cups of tea every day (milk no sugar) but know that friends who follow a Low GI diet have great success. I reckon, once you are in a routine, everything seems to fall into place and with a Low GI diet, you will soon find how to curb sugar lows if you get them. Hope this helps.
